Doris and I just found out about this; we send our deepest condolences to the entire Family and especially Mrs. Francis. I have fond memories of first meeting this wonderful family up at Mistletoe State park circa 1975 when they were camping there and I was 18 or 19 years old working as a lifeguard. I hope that Mr. Brown has heard the words, "Well done good and faithful servant" and that he's now in paradise. May God bless the Brown family.

We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Joe. He was a godly man and made a difference in the lives of so many children he taught in Sunday School, including our children. Praying for Frances and all the family during this difficult time.

Joe was such a precious man. God used him through the years to share His love with young and old. He is greatly missed on this earth - but, oh! the rejoicing in Heaven! I bet Barbara ran through the crowd to grab him around the neck! Love to all of you!

Sorry to hear this. Joe and I started to work at Kimberly Clark on the same day in 1968. He was always friendly and helpful and I enjoyed working with him. I am sure he will be missed.
